Jesus neither condones nor approves of wasting food. I distinctly remember reading in John 6:12-13, "When they were filled, He said to His disciples, 'Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost.' So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the ...

My respite from the confines of life is the 241 toll road -- a glorious 23 mile stretch of smoothly paved road, expansive hills and sky and an utter absence of traffic at most times of the day. I'm undeniably in love with it. My apologies to the 5, 55 and 91 freeways, but you'll never measure up. I began...

All empires fall. The Romans, Moguls, Ottomans, Byzantines and especially the Hummer have had their golden age and are now nothing but names in history. And just like these fallen titans of power, the next big name to this list is the reason #ruinedchildhood exists -- Disney Channel.

As I stand there, crowds of people rush around me. I can’t keep my eyes off of this one frame of artwork; the strokes enthrall me and the overall beauty of it renders me speechless. The murmurs of the other people in the room serve as white noise as I stare into The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Mor...

We all know the story. The princess goes to the ball. Eats an apple. Fights the dragon. Talks to mice. Gets her legs back. These are the fairy tales that we grew up with. But there is more to a fairy tale than just a princess and her prince or a boy and his beanstalk. Feb. 26, 2015 may seem li...

Beyoncé can preach that girls run the world and we can spread that message until our voices hurt, but feminism is more than just words -- it’s a belief in female empowerment. Feminism is the belief in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes. According to the Foundation for Economic...

My heart pounds as I walk out into the lunch shelter. I look to my left and right, dodging deans and watching students all around me get stopped for breaking dress code. Just when I think I have a 360 degree vision of my surroundings, I run straight into the foreboding notepad of detention slips with...

“One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and one, two, three, four…” Carrie counts in her head as she approaches the last element of the routine: the pyramid. She feels the bases grip her feet and in a blink she is high above the ground. At the very top of her ascent, she has a split second to take it all in. The cheers, the ...

I think I hate California. I mean, sure, California has its scenic beaches, vast mountain ranges, gushing rivers, bustling cities, delicious food and unique culture -- but it definitely doesn’t rain enough for my liking. Rain is something that southern Californians don’t encounter on a regular...
